Cantique des quantiques [création]
Avec Renaud Semper, danse
You are almost me
I am almost you
There is a throbbing between us
Sonic matter fluctuates
In the time of a beat
Can it be vibrating with such infinitesimal palpitations?
In unison, one unique son
Let us unite
For a Sabbath of sounds beating
And sliding slowly
Lower, lower, lower.
Please listen with your best headphones or good quality speakers!
This music is made up of tiny internal beats and palpitations, which can sometimes distort the compressed files on You Tube… Do not turn the volume up too high.
An excellent article by Michele Tosi on this edition of the festival is published in the magazine ResMusica, in which she writes,
There is a perfect balance of forces in Cantique des Quantiques, a composition à la Lucie Prod’homme touching on both the physical and the meta-physical. The music is exquisite yet parsimonious, ample yet understated, leaving room for a dance which is in turn unassumingly expressive. The result is undoubtedly one of the most successful collaborations of this years’ festival. The composer challenges us to listen to the resonance of each sound, vibrations between frequencies and micro variations in the sound spectrum, creating an immersive universe which transcends the dance of Renaud Semper-Manchon who is equally focused and reflective.

The idea here is to link auditory and olfactory perception, in order to share a sensory experience, despite the subjectivity of such an experience.
